Remembering the words

  1. 1. Remembering the words<br />Independent learning skills for vocabulary study<br />Michael Griffiths<br />
  2. 2. How would you judge your level of vocabulary? <br />Where would you ideally like to be? <br />What are the effects of not learning vocabulary? <br />
  3. 3. If you are planning on going to university, you will never stop learning new words. <br />Your level of vocabulary should be high enough to help you (not stop you).<br />If you don’t learn enough vocabulary, you won’t be able to understand university level books or articles (and it takes a long time for you to catch up). <br />
  4. 4. Learning StylesWhich one(s) are you? How do you learn? How can this be used in vocabulary study? <br />Visual = Seeing<br />Auditory = Hearing<br />Kinaesthetic = Touching, Feeling, Doing<br />
  5. 5. How can you use Powerpoint to learn vocabulary? <br />In a notebook, write down any new words you read or hear. <br />At the end of the day, you should enter your new words onto Powerpoint slides. <br />One word = One slide.<br />Try to include as much information about the word as you can. <br />Review your slides everyday to help you remember. <br />
  6. 6. What information should you include on your slides? <br />Word<br />Word class<br />Word stress<br />Meaning<br />Example sentence<br />Other information based on your learning style<br />
